    Is domestic violence becoming commonplace in Hollywood? Just within the last month, we’ve reported allegations against rapper The Game, actor Columbus Short, and now former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson is thrown in the mix.

    According to reports, the ESPN commentator was arrested for misdemeanor spousal battery early Monday morning at his Calabasas, Calif. home. “When deputies arrived, it was determined that the resident and his ex-girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute,” said Los Angeles County Sgt. Carmen Arballo. The 41-year-old was taken into custody and booked at the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station. He posted his $20,000 bond around 9:15 a.m. and was released soon after.

    Sources say the woman involved was Keyshawn’s on-and-off girlfriend of seven years. They were allegedly arguing over marriage when things turned physical. While the athlete admitted to grabbing her phone and smashing it on the ground, he insisted he never laid a hand on her.

    But, it seems the two are working things out, according to TMZ Sports. Around 1:30 p.m., the site “shot footage of the two out TOGETHER at an AT&T store in L.A., presumably buying a new cell phone.”
